History should never be forgotten, rather, we have to learn from past mistakes.

I love the juxtaposition of the Roundel cover here. It shows the 2 design directions BMW could have gone. Wider grille or taller. I much prefer the wider grilles of the 308 in the back.

front end aftermarket

maybe some company will develop an aftermarket front end, replacing what BMW is going to come out with and make one similar to the front of the 3-series or g20 looks like, its doable.

I cant find the link but someone sells an M2 bumper for a M2xx, other than width, looks identical to an M2 bumper

The thing is the tall grills fit the pie shaped car and the short and wide grills fit the low aerodynamic car. The new 3/4 grill is a mismatch of styles. Like wearing work boots with a tuxedo

507?

I still wouldn't mind if the finished product would look like the 4 concept, in fact, I would love it! However, the headlights are bloated and the hoodline has appeared. I'm losing hope

It will be less noticeable this way and we still end up with an Audi looking grill

Soft top versus hardtop, I really don't have a strong opinion one way or the other, but I would be concerned about someone knifing it. For those who have soft tops, does it help with increasing the space in the trunk when folded?

That grill though? They sadly missed the mark. But I will be the first to say that this horse is beaten so thoroughly it's glue.

I think BMW decided to re-shape the grille.
